Darlings, this week everything is SOOOOOOOO FIERCE!
What? Did you think the highly buzzed-about Moschino Barbie commercial starring the world’s first babygay was going to pass unremarked-upon by us? Oh, HONEY. As two former sissy boys (who are now proud sissy men), we couldn’t stop from spewing at least 30 minutes worth of opinion on this ad, what it’s like to grow up non-gender-conforming, the accusations that we and other gay men in media are performing a kind of gay minstrel show, and the hope for a future where little butch girls and little sissy boys can hold hands with little butch boys and little girly-girls and play with ALL THE TOYS TOGETHER.
YES. WE SAID ALL THAT.
PLUS: we go off on a bunch of year-end movie watching, with our thoughts on Trainwreck, The Woman in Gold, Jurassic World and Ant-Man!
PLUS-PLUS: Jessica Jones vs. Supergirl! The many sides of super-heroines!
PLUS-PLUS-PLUS: The Wiz Live! and how it’s bound to work so much better than its predecessors, The Sound of Music Live! and Peter Pan Live!
We truly lived up to the “opinionfest” mantle this week.
Also: we should have a Jessica Jones recap up later today. You might want to tap out on the portion of the podcast where we talk about it until you’ve seen a couple episodes.
As always, you can download/subscribe to the podcast here. Thank you all for your support, kittens, and if you like what you hear, pass it around.
